15:11 EDTFLFoot Locker technical notes before earnings
The stock is in a classically bullish uptrend, testing down to support ahead of earnings. If the news continues to be bullish, the first resistance level of note on the way up is the life high at $74.95. If that level is broken on the upside, a run to the $80 area or higher would be possible. Shares would however be extended on a short-term basis technically were that to happen. If the news is a bearish surprise, the first support level to watch would be at the bottom of the price channel at $71.06, the 30-day moving average. A breakdown below that support would snap the uptrend. Next support levels to watch as potential upside objectives would be at $68.50, $65.80, and $63.66.
